Hi guys!!!  I'm very excited today since I finally get out off bed and dragged myself to the fabric store..  So I managed to make a studded kimono cardigan, and it took like around 3 hours from figuring out the pattern until putting in the studs..

And I have a tutorial for you guys!!!


A kimono cardigan structure is very easy to understand where I already transelate it into the simplest diagram below;

ww= wrist to wrist

nb = neck to bottom (length)

SO, here's the measurements I used for this project..  You guys can use your own measurements but if your are lazy enough, feel free to use mine (fits from XS-L)

For the pattern, only the back part that has to be cut on fold..The front part just cut one for each sides.

I've used a single pattern for the from and back part of the kimono..  The triangle labelled as ''a'' only to be cut when you are doing the front part..

p/s: squiggly part is the seam allowance

Here I show you guys what the fabric should look like after cutting with the pattern..

The picture above shows some colored lines that I will explain next;


1) Green lines = before sewing the pieces together, do finishing stitches along the green lines.

2) Red lines = sew them together first, once you're done sew the (previously green) lines together.

3) Blue line = do finishing seam stitches along the line.

AAANNDDD YOU'RE DONE!!!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

If you find this tutorial is a bit complicated, feel free to leave some questions for me.. 

Thanks for reading and have a nice day guys  Cool Cheesy

A style from your mind is a fashion statement from you!

Your kimono cardigan looks very nice, but I really want to compliment you on your tutorial. It is very clear, and explain everything.

I love this style jacket.  Yours is very nice--and the studs add a designer's touch!

Thanks for a simple and easy to follow tutorial.
